Prince William and Kate Middleton are officially aunt and uncle! Kate Middleton’s sister, Pippa, and her husband James Matthews welcomed a baby boy on Monday, weighing 8 lbs., 9 oz, according to People.

“Everyone is delighted and mother and baby are doing well,” a representative for the couple shared.

The news comes just one day after it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are expecting their first child together.

Pippa and James got married last year and though they aren’t official members of the Royal Family, their new son will have several royal cousins, aunts and uncles.

Throughout her pregnancy, Pippa shared the ways she was staying healthy and active— including meditation. “I was skeptical at first, but after practicing this discipline for the past month I have noticed a huge difference in my mental wellbeing and sense of clarity,” she said in a column she wrote for Waitrose Magazine.

“It’s a good idea to take some wellbeing time for mummy-to-be now and, most importantly, for the future.”
